Personal Property Tax South Carolina

I'm currently at Ocean Lakes Campground. I am heading back to Ohio and will be returning for the TDC Spring Rally end of April. Thought I would put the Palazzo in storage here for the interim. In reading the storage agreement, it indicates that the RV will be subject to Horry County Personal Property tax. Is this true for someone from out of state?

I'd say if it's not tagged there no or if it's like the thousands of other camper stored at ocean lakes that are not tagged then yes.

The information that I received is that if it is in storage on Dec 31, they have to report it. Consequently, several are removed from storage Dec 30 and returned on Jan 1 or 2. My short term storage of 6 weeks shouldn't be a problem. Still don't know if that applies only to SC residents or not.
I remember reading a thread where someone stayed in a New England state for over 90 days and got nailed for personal property tax. I panicked a little.

This topic has come up before and as I recall, some jurisdictions do just as you've been told. You can call the county clerk or assessor to check if this is one. I can tell you, you don't want to be paying the property tax they'd charge for a new rig. It cost us $800 this past year for our '12 pontoon boat and motor. Three years ago I asked what our then '07 Allegro Open Road and Jeep would cost, if we registered it in SC, and were told just under $2k (every county/jurisdiction will be different). We followed through on plan A, nothing is registered in SC except the boat, which never leaves the county, let alone the state.

I can not tell you.. I can tell you this though.. When the Zilwakee Bridge in Michigan was haulted due to a construction mistake (Dropped a section in the river they did, made one mel of a hess) There was much complaint about the fact that the construction equipment was parked where it was parked so one city or another did not benefit from property tax.. Of course that is a different state.

As for me.. My RV is in SC (But not stored) over the new year switch,,, Usually.. If it's not in GA... but I pay Michigan Tax on it.

This registration, is that a one time deal when you register a vehicle / RV in SC. Or is it good for a certain number of years.

These are property taxes, paid every year. I am told they will diminish, at least on a boat, over 7 years to nothing. I'm guessing the boat dealers love this.

I doubt you are subject to tax if not registered in SC. Although that is not to say that some numbskull will submit you, or some busybody will turn you in. There are always those types around.

South Carolina taxes our toys heavily. Both boats and RV's. They don't dimish to nothing unless your property plummets in value. I was still getting a tax bill for $200 a year on a 15 year old boat. The good news is that sales tax is capped at $300. So if you buy an old beater car, or a $15 million Lear Jet, your max tax is $300. The bad news is we have these annual property taxes.

How it works is they take the assessed value and multiply by 10.5%. Then to that number, they assess the millage. Where I live, that is .256

So the tax bill on my fifth wheel was over $1800 last year. FWIW, the value is hard to argue with them about - they have a book and look it up. If you paid much less than that, you can try to argue with them, but it's a crap shoot as to weather or not you will prevail. I've won some, and loss some, in that regard.

We'll if I owned some $$$ toy's (boat, RV...vehicles) SC. would have to come off my list for a retirement state. Ohio is starting to look better and better except for the winter cold & snow.

? If per say I registered a 14' Tundra (42k) and a 13' tt (20k) what would be your guess as to how much my yearly property tax be. I understand their values go down over time....

I remember back in the mid 80's me and the DW bought and lived in a mobile-home in a trailer park in Ohio and paid a yearly "trailer tax". Our unit was 17 years old at the time and valued at if I can remember $4000 and the tax was like $45 a year. Bought it for $6500 and sold it for $11,500 four years later.

I would think that S.C. law is similar to VA law. In Virginia if a vehicle is garaged in the state, it is subject to local personal property tax regardless of where it is licensed.

What a story on that bridge! It was a problem child from the beginning. Interesting reading for a retired bridge engineer. Thanks for the comment!

What make it worse is the guy who was in charge of quality contol on the team that dropped the bridge segment, was hired by Coleman Young to build the Detroit Downtown People Mover.

You guessed it, he dropped a section of track right smack in the middle o the John C Lodge (M-10) Expressway just north of Cobo Hall.

I have racing friends in SC. If you license a box trailer, the tax man figures you must have something to put in it, so he visits, finds the race car, and taxes that!
